Retired physician and air taxi operator, science writer and part time assistant professor, these editorials cover a wide range of topics. Mostly non political, mostly true, I write more from experience than from research and more from science than convention. Subjects cover medicine, Alaska aviation, economics, technology and an occasional book review. The Floatplane book is out there. I am currently working on Hippocrates a History of Medicine and Globalism. Enjoy!

Seizure of Assets

 If massive foreign interference in our 2020 election plays out, and the justice department were to carrie out a seizure of assets from all perpetrators and enablers, that transfer of wealth would surpass counting. Furthermore, if the proceeds of such a massive seizure were to be redistributed by the treasury like the stimulus checks, it would transfer massive sequestered wealth, a wealth lost by the American people through the capital divergence of globalism, back to the people who paid for it in the first place, to the demand side of the economy. It would transfer sequestered wealth into a booming market where it would turn over again and again in market velocity and productivity.

Amazon, Google, Face Book, Twitter, New York Times, Washington Post, CNN and other participants in enabling and obscuring foreign interference would face financial consequences. Foreign agents, Democratic candidates or any other candidate involved in election rigging would forfeit the election, face financial seizure and near certain imprisonment. Even low level election officials naively involved would tragically face a similar outcome. The main man, however, would probably walk.

Ironically, such a transfer of wealth from the supply side of the market to the consumer would amount to a Democrats wet dream, a dream of transferring wealth. Big media, big data and big politicians would suffer, but for Democrats especially, Republicans, business in general and mostly the people, such an outcome would be a massive stimulus and a win- win scenario. We’ll see what happens. 

Right now we face an ethical dilemma. Do we gloss over the evidence of a crime out of cowardice, fear or political stability and public confidence, or do we investigate thoroughly and let the chips fall where they may. The scope of the alleged foreign subversion if true is heart breaking. It shatters our faith in America. I don’t see a choice, however. I cannot imagine a higher crime or a greater disappointment in the people involved and the system.
